Marketplace

5 p.m. Weekdays
  • Hosted by Kai Ryssdal

Award-winning Marketplace is public radio's daily magazine on business and economics news "for the rest of us." Helmed by Kai Ryssdal, our flagship program examines what the day in money delivered, through stories, conversations, newsworthy numbers and more.

The 30-minute program airs weekday evenings on public radio stations nationwide and boasts the largest audience for any business program in the United States on radio, cable or network television. In conjunction with Marketplace Morning Report and Marketplace Tech, Marketplace defines your listeners' place in the economy. With smarts and a bit of wit, we make it make sense.

Donald Trump says auto imports from Japan and the E.U. threaten the U.S.'s national security. SAT participants will now get an "adversity score," but they won't know what it is. Plus, we travel to Denmark, where top chefs are developing the foods of the future. Rollie pollies, anyone?
